Focused Ion Beam Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2021


Focused ion beam systems have been used extensively for more than two decades, most significantly in the semiconductor industry and also in various biomaterials and materials science fields. Focused ion beam set up is a scientific instrument which resembles a scanning electron microscope or SEM. FIB systems coupled with SEM are used commonly to prepare samples for transmission electron microscope or TEM. The global focused ion beam market has been segmented on the basis of ion sources, applications and geography. A cross sectional study of the global focused ion beam market broadly across five major geographical segments has also been covered under the purview of the report. 

 

The factors which are primarily driving the growth of global Focused ion beam market are increasing application of focused ion beam systems in materials science and increase in demand for failure analysis equipment. FIB systems are being commonly found in a broad range of applications in the material science laboratories including specimen preparation and generation of 3D visualization, circuit editing, microstructural analysis and prototype nanomachining. Focused ion beam systems are also commonly used in the semiconductor and manufacturing industries as failure analysis equipment. This equipment is used in order to detect the primary cause of failure and prevent its reoccurrence. In addition, increase in demand for ion lithography is playing a significant role in the growth of the global focused ion beam market. Focused ion beams used in lithography offer higher resolution patterning in comparison to X-ray, UV or electron beam lithography. The conjoint effect of all these drivers and trends is therefore set to bolster the growth of the global focused ion beam market during the forecast period from 2015-2021.

 

Application of Focused ion beams in nano machining is expected to boost the growth of the global Focused ion beam market in the coming years. Focused ion beam etching equipment has shown high potential for a wide range of innovative applications in the field nanotechnology including imaging and precision micromachining. Furthermore, rapid advances in ion sources are expected to offer new growth opportunities for Focused ion beam systems to produce unique materials and new lithographic geometries. At present, several alternative ion sources are being developed for FIB microscopes which offer a large range of available ion currents, beam sizes and energies. However, high price of focused ion beam systems is restricting the wide adoption of the equipment, especially in small and medium-scale industries.

The global market for focused ion beam has been covered under the scope of this report. Focused ion beam systems have been commercially produced primarily for large semiconductor manufacturers for more than twenty years. While the application of Focused ion beams was mainly restricted to the semiconductor industry, in the recent years, this instrument is finding usage in metallurgy, biology, polymers, composites, ceramics and pharmaceuticals among others. Focused ion beams achieved widespread application in the fields of materials science and biological science when it was coupled with a scanning electron microscope column to develop a dual beam FIB system.

 

The global Focused ion beam market is primarily driven by factors such as increasing application of focused ion beam systems in materials science, increase in demand for ion beam lithography and an increase in demand for failure analysis equipment. Focused ion beams are used in the field of materials science, both as a microscope and as a specimen preparation tool. Focused ion beams used in lithography offer high resolution patterning and offer significant advantages over electron beam lithography in terms of backscattering, proximity effects and resist sensitivity. Focused ion beam systems are used as failure analysis equipment commonly in the semiconductor industry to detect the common causes of failure such as manufacturing defects, design errors, misuse and assembly errors among others. Considering these positive factors, the demand for Focused ion beam systems is set to rise during the forecast period from 2015 - 2021.

 

The global Focused ion beam market, by ion sources is segmented broadly into four major segments, namely gallium, gold, iridium and others (including gas field ionization sources and liquid metal alloy ion sources). In terms of revenue, the gallium ion source was the largest contributor to the market, followed by iridium in 2014. Currently, most of the FIB instruments are equipped with liquid metal ion source (LMIS) with emit gallium ions. Gallium LMIS FIB technology is preferred over other ion sources owing to its stability, long source lifetime, low melting point and high mass ions for fairly rapid machining.

 

The global Focused ion beam market by applications is divided into six segments, namely: circuit edit, device modification, materials science, nanofabrication, failure analysis and others (including biological science). Circuit editing and materials science are the major application areas of Focused ion beams and they are positively impacting the growth of the global market. FIB circuit editing helps in prototyping new devices without expensive and time consuming masking set fabrication. FIB-based systems are widely deployed in material science laboratories for generating 3D images and specimen preparation.

 

The global Focused ion beam market has been bifurcated into five broad geographic regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East and Africa. North America occupied the largest share of the market in 2014 accounting for 39.2%. The market in this region is primarily driven by the high penetration of Focused ion beam systems in semiconductor and manufacturing industries. Asia Pacific acquired the second largest share of the market globally, accounted for 26.2% in terms of revenue in 2014. The market for Focused ion beams in the region is primarily driven by high concentration of semiconductor industries in emerging countries such as China, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea and India.

 

Some of the key players in the Focused ion beam market are Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation (Tokyo, Japan), FEI (Hillsboro, United States), Evans Analytical Group (California, United States), Carl Zeiss AG (Jena, Germany) and the Fibics Incorporated (Ottawa, Canada) among others.
